You may notice a white film on the surface of your beeswax candles called "bloom". Bloom is not a defect but a process that occurs naturally on the surface of 100% beeswax candles. To remove the bloom, rub the surface gently with a soft cloth. Or, allow the bloom to continue for a snowflake like texture on the surface of your candles.
In colonial times, candles were a necessity for every household. The most commonly used tallow candles burned quickly, gave out a dim light, and had a grim odor. Not only did beeswax candles smell sweet, they also burned cleaner and longer than tallow candles, and gave out a brighter light. Unfortunately, they were a luxury only the very wealthy could afford, because beeswax was expensive.

My candles arrived quickly and were packaged with great care to ensure they did not break during shipping. They are also great quality, I will definitely be buying these again in the future.
These beautiful candles are a great addition to your Holiday and Colonial Decor. They are also great to have on hand when the weather causes your electric to go out!

You cannot find a better candle than the natural beeswax candles. The natural color is lovely. I also purchased them in red for Christmas. I love that shopping from The Williamsburg Marketplace seems to be having more sales and providing free shipping after spending a certain amount. Thank you for making it more possible to shop from your sites! I love all things Williamsburg!
Bought these to use in vintage pewter candlesticks. Very nice looking and burn even. Would purchase again.
Excellent product that burns evenly
I've been buying your natural beeswax candles for decades, as far back as when they were sold in a box of 12. I put them in my CWF pewter candlestick holders (a gift in the early 90s), which enhances their beauty. These candles are long/slow burning, have virtually no scent (mild honey aroma), and drip much less than lesser candles. These candles are all I burn, ever. I wish the green bayberry tapers would come back in stock, and I also wish CFW would sell 1/2" wide tapersticks that I could use for Advent. Highly recommended.
These candles work very well
